They had the choice between the Audi and the Volvo and they chose this. Kids have got taste.Jesus. I wouldn't have put my kids in that thing.
I don’t think it’s safe by modern standards. To be fair, it’s probably not safe by 80s standards either.Not gonna lie, i wouldnt put my wife in that thing, let alone my kids, if i had any.
Ignoring the fact that its not really my scene, surely compared to modern machinery, its not particularly safe?
New cars are supposed to crumble, taking the force of the impact. Old volvos were build like tanks and thos transferred crash forces onto the passengersWeren't Volvo famous for their safety innovations? They were crash testing cars to a much higher standard than anyone else way before ENCAP came along, I bet that thing holds up way better in an accident than the contemporaries of it's day, tbh it probably holds up better than a Saxo or a mk1 Clio, also there's loads of classics that would fold like a empty Coke can in an accident, doesn't stop people enjoying their classic Mini's, mk1 Golf's or classic Fords.
